CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, APRIL 29, 1899.
No. 25.
CASCADE WILL CELEBRATE
And Delegations From All Over the
Boundary Will Assist
PRIZES FOR SPORTS OF EVERY KIND
The First Brass Band Ever Heard In the Boundary Country Has Been Engafed for tbe
Occasion.
Every detail is now being looked
after for the great celebration of
Queen's birthday which is to take
place in Cascade this year. There
is no longer any doubt of the successful outcome of the event, as
every man in town, seemingly,
has taken hold of the idea with a
wi'l, and is doing his share,
financially and/ otherwise for the
occasion.
Grand Forks has decided to
celebrate Dominion Day, instead
of May 24th, as was talked of, and
has promised to send a large contingent to'take part in ' the games
and sports at Cascade on the
occurrence of juur festivities. Cascade will reciprocate on July 1st.
Goodly delegations are expected
also from Columbia, Greenwood,
Gladstone, English Point, Bossburg, etc. In fact, crowds will
centre here from all points of the
compass.
The finance committee has held
several meetings, and has decided
to place every dollar possible in
prizes for the various races and
sports. The sports committee has
also held a number of meetings,
and have successfully arranged a
most attractive series of events, for
the day. This committee has
divided into the following subcommittees : On racing, Messrs.
Johnston, Cooper and Crowell ;
baseball, Messrs. Woodman, Shepherd, Robinson and Sinclair; rock
drilling contest,Sinclair, McLellan
and Crowell. It has also been
decided to offer a prize for the best
decorated building in town, and
several are making preparations to
compete for this prize. Local
dealers have ordered flags and
hunting, to supply the expected
demand. ,
A representative of the Record
visited Bossburg last Tuesday, and
the brass hand of that town, 12
strong, has been engaged at a large
expense and will be here all day of
the 24th of May, to enliven things.
The closing hall in the evening
'Will be an- important event also,
for which the best of music is to be
provided.
The large posters, announcing
the celebration, are now in the
hands of the printer, and in a few
days will be distributed ell over
the territory adjacent to this city.
A. McCulloch, one of the members of Engineer Englund's force,
returned from Spokane last week
with his bride. Both are now receiving the congratulations of
friends.
NEW STAOE LINE STARTS.
Is Styled the International Flyer, and Makes
Good Time.
Quite unexpectedly last evening,
about seven o'clock, the first of the
new line of stages drove into Cascade. A new covered vehicle, with
four horses was used, on the side
of which was painted " International Flyer." Manager Russell
was handling the ribbons and
Secretary Plummer was also aboard,
the stage being loaded with passengers Nearly an hour later the
Columbia Stage Line's first vehicle
arrived. In crossing the Columbia
river the Columbia stage got over
first, hut the flyer passed it on the
long Bossburg hill and kept ahead.
The time made by the new line
is a great improvement over the
schedule heretofore in use, and if
the record now made it* kept up, it
will make the stage ride much-less
irksome. The new line will also
carry express matter, and is now
arranging for an agent in this city
to handle its business.

Orip Cut Open and Rifled.
An old country grip was found
Thursday night on the flat, near
the bridge, by D. P. Barber. It
had been ripped open from .end to
end, and contained a lot of articles,
such as photos, letters, etc., of use
to no one but the owner. Attached
to it was a tag with the name
"John Watkins, Greenwood,"
written thereon. Several tools
were also found near it. The
theory is that the grip was stolen,
and being found locked was cut
open, a,nd rifled. It had evidently
been there since last fall or, winter.
Officer Darraugh now has the
outfit.     ���  : v     '
Dominion Veterinary Inspector
Richards returned from a tour of
inspection through the Boundary
country yesterday. While absent
he slaughtered sixty hogs, valued
at $900, that were afflicted with
hog cholera. They belonged to R.
D. Kerr, a rancher near Midway.
Even Mike Shick is now beginning to believe some of the tall
stories he told last fall about the
great Mother Lode group, in the
Burnt Basin, for' the preliminary
Work thus far is bearing out all
that he said. After getting camp
established, a week or two ago, he
began a series of crosscuts across
the ledge for a distance of nearly
300 feet Snow had to be cleared
off first, but in- every case, when
the men got down to the ledge,
they found the most satisfactory
kind of ore. Free gold in small
chunks could plainly be seen with
the naked eye, and by breaking
and panning the rock, there were
plenty of colors found. It could
be hammered into small nuggets,
in fact.
It goes without saying that this
is the beet kind of news to come
from the Burnt Basin, and is en*
couraging'to the large number of
development companies and individuals that are making ready to
prove up the gold dykes of
favored locality.    ~~"^
Among those that have lately
begun operations is the St. George
Mines Development Co., Ltd. Manager T. G. Elgie left Rossland last
Monday with a gang of men for
the Burnt Basin, where they are to
begin development work on the
Pleasures of Hope claim. The
Solid Gold, Barrow, Copper Frrm,
Eva Bell, Ennismore, Tammany,
International group and Mystery
group are a few of those on which
work has already commenced or
will shortly be under way.
la the Districts.
A lead of fine sulphide ore has
been struck in the Main . claim in
Summit camp.
The B. C. mine, in Summit
camp, now has a thousand tons of
shipping ore on the dump.
A six-foot ledge, with $70 assays,
has been struck on the Gold Standard in camp McKinney.
Work has begun on the Claw
Hammer on Boundary mountain,
with T. S. Davis as manager.
The Key West and Mountain
Maid, promising Skylark camp
claims, nave heen sold by Messrs.
Goodhue and Munn to Spokane
capitalists.
The Smuggler Co., in Fairview,
has $6,000 in the treasury and will
proceed with development on the
Toronto, British Lion and Admiral
Dewey claims. ".
It is generally reported that a
fine ledge of ore has been struck on
the Wiarton claim in Camp McKinney the management asserting
it to he a continuation of the Cariboo
ledge.
Jay P.Graves informed a Record
man this week that no decision
about the location of his smelter
had yet been reached, but might
be in a few days.    He says there
is no water.power worth mentioning except at Caccade.
At a recent meeting of the direc-
tors of the Fairview corporation,
the affairs of the company were
shown to be in a most satisfactory
condition, and more especially can
this be said of the Stemwinder
claim, the development of which ia
giving the utmost satisfaction.
It is reported that the R-Bell, a
Summit camp property which attracted attention some time ago,
has been sold to an Engish syndicate through Alexander Dick, of
Rossland. The property has a 70-
foot double comportment ehaft.and
is equipped with a hoist and pump.

CASCADE'S NEW SCHOOL DISTRICT.
Council of Education at Last Defines Its
Boundaries.
The last week's issue of the
British Columbia Gazette, contains
notice of the creation of a school
district for Cascade, as follows :
" The council has been pleased
to create the following tract of land
to be a school district, under the
title of' Cascade City School District':
" Commencing at the south-east
corner of section 5, township 74,
OsoyooB division of Yale district;
thence due north six miles to the
north-east corner of section 32 ;
thence due west six miles to the
north-west corner of section 33,
township 73 ; thence due south to
the international boundary line ;
thence due east along the international boundary line to the
point of commencement."
Trustee Ferguson, of the local
school board has received orders
from Superintendent Alexander
Robinson to hold a school election,
and has posted up notices about
town to that effect. The election
will be held at the school house at
noon of Saturday, May 6th, and
will be for the purpose of electing
three trustees for the newly created
district.
Any one, male or female, can
vote at said election if a householder or freeholder, having resided
in the district six months and is of
the age of 21 years ; or if a British
subject, and conforming to the
residence And age qualifications.
School trustees do not necessarily
have to be men, as women can be
elected, if their husbands are not
already on the school hoard.
F. J. Finucane, manager of the
Bank of Montreal at Greenwood,
was in Cascade last Sunday.
There are from two to three feet
of snow yet in the Burnt Basin,
except on the south and west
slopes.
Give Pringle and G. A. Bielenberg, prominent mining men of
Greenwood, stopped in Cascade on
Monday.
H. E. McDonnell, contracting
freight agent of the C. P. R., with
headquarters at Nelson, was in
Cascade Monday, and disposed of
some freight that had been refused
by merchants in the upper Boundary country.
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
H.   Hazelton   made  a   trip to
Greenwood this week,
... Just before the rains of Tuesday
the wagon road to Bossburg, was
in excellent condition.
Ed. Ferguson, representing H. J.
Evans & Co.; of Nelson, and H.
Irvine, of Fred Irvine & Co., were
in the Gateway City last Monday.
George K. Stocker's new cottage
is receiving a coat of paint. The
Montana hotel building is also
undergoing the same sort of a
pleasing transformation.
F. E. Starkey, manager of the
Rossland branch of the Parsons
Produce Co., was in town on Wednesday, in company with Geo.
Tunstall, of the Hamilton Powder
Co.
Sheriff Waesman, of Republic,
stopped in Cascade Tuesday night.
He had an insane woman in
charge, and was taking her to the
Medical Lake asylum, 17 miles
west of Spokane.
E. G. Simpson, formerly with
the Nelson Miner, was a caller at
the Record office last Wednesday.
He was en route for Greenwood,
where he has accepted a position
oh the Boundary Creek Times, a
controlling interest in which was
lately acquired by R. E. Gosnell.
. hi G. Henderson, of the Henderson Publishing Co., of Victoria,
has been travelling through the
Boundary country, preparing matter for the B. C. Gazetteer and
Directory of Mining Companies, to
appear this summer. The publication is made as nearly accurate
as possible, and is a most nseful
volume.
Telephone Construction.
The Inland Telephone Co., which
recently let a contract for the poles
for the metallic circuit loop from
Bossburg to near Cascade, now
has the poles distributed all along
the route, and will probably soon
commence the stringing of wire.
The Columbia Co., whrth is
building from Cascade to Camp
McKinney, a distance of about 75
miles, also has most of the poles
on the right of way. In a few days
a gang of 15 men, Superintendent
Donald says, will begin setting the
poles and putting up the wire, and
no time will be lost in completing
the line.

There is talk in some quartern of
making a new mining division, extending from Cascade through the
McRae creek pass, to and beyond
Lower Arrow lake, taking in the
locality of Deer Park. The utter
absurdity of such a proposition is
apparent on the face of it to any
thinking man. Thd district is and
will be for some time sparsely
settled at best, and the suggested
change would be worse than the
present arrangement. Those who
have looked carefully into the
matter concede that nothing would
be of as much convenience to the
mining men of the Christina lake
section as establishing an office in
Cascade where papers could be recorded. This is impressing itself
more and more upon those who
take pains to investigate the subject.        	
It is said, after straightening out
a little misunderstanding that the
German naval officers had with
Admiral Dewey at Manilla, that
the American admiral laid down
the law in regard to the blockade
he was making, so emphatically,
that thereafter the Germans " did
not breathe four times successively
without asking permission." This
was brought to mind lately by a
speech made at a New York banquet by Captain Coghlan. of the
cruiser Raleigh, one of Dewey's
fleet at the naval battle of Manilla,
nearly a year ago. All opinions
agree that Admiral Dewey was the
right man, in the right plane and
at the right time.
The C. P. R. is epending vast
sums in railway work in southern
British Columbia. Not only is
work proceeding to a finish on the
105 mile Robson-Midway branch,
but a contract has just been let for
straightening the Columbia & Kootenay line from Nelson to Robson,
and work is actually commencing
on the 85 mile Lardo branch.
These are indications of the faith
in the untold mineral wealth of
this section that will carry great
weight with investors throughout
the world.
In two years the mineral output
of the Dominion has almost quadrupled, reaching in 1898 the total
of $37,757,167. Gold, for the first
time, is at the head of the list, due
doubtless to the Klondike output,
with $13,000,000. Copper and silver each exceed $2,000,000. In the
near future these three metals will
cut more of a figure than in the
past, as the output of the precious
metals in British Columbia alone
is growing at a rapid rate and bids
to grow even faster in the years to
come.
The next meeting of the licensing board should be held in Cascade. Last December it was held
at Grand Forks, but that town
being incorporated, the board could
not pass upon applications for
licenses within the corporate limits.
By sitting in Cascade the board
will accommodate the greatest
number of hotel keepers. Cascade
people should make the proper
representations to have the meeting
take place here. The regular date
for meeting is May 15th.
It took the Spokesman-Review
two days after the appearance of
the announcement in the Record,
to find out that D. C. Corbin had
withdrawn his application for a
charter for the Kettle River Valley
railway. Corbin says he's too
busy raising beet sugar ai.d fighting mining suits to bother with
railway* just now. Probably the
withdrawal of the Grand Trunk's
support had something to do
with it.   	
That was a curious spectacle
presented by Mayor Garden and
the Vancouver city council, when
they tried to prevent the beginning
of operations on a mill that would
give steady employment to at least
a thousand men at fair wages, all
of whom would live in or near
Vancouver. Most cities would
welcome such an addition to their
producing class, and even hold
out inducements to secure their
coming.
The case of the Iron Mask vs.
Centre Star, on trial this week in
Rossland, is one of unusual interest
to mining men. Clarence King,
the world renowned geologist and
consulting mining engineer, has
been called in as an expert, and
his evidence, being of a geological
nature and treating of the formation of Rossland camp, is naturally attracting wide attention.
The eight-hour law has been
suspended for the time being, but
it is on the statute books, and is
likely to cause any amount of
trouble in the Kootenays before
long. In Rossland there is talk of
a strike if it is not put in operation, and the Slocan mine owners
are loud in their opposition to it.
Why it was enacted appears to be
a mystery, but it bids fair to be
the bone of many a contention.
It is unfortunate that those interested in Grand Forks and Columbia cannot adjust their differences and work together harmoni
ously for the upbuilding of the
Boundary country. It cannot be
said to be a particularly edifying
spectacle to have them showing up
each other's skeletons to the world.
Why not bury the hatchet, and
hereafter smoke the pipe of peace.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
R. E. Gosnell, who iB to assume
charge of the Greenwood Times
shortly, is a newspaper man of
many years' experience. Under
him the paper shonld continue to
forge rapidly ahead.
It is expected that Cascade's
custom house will also before long
be made a warehousing point. It
will be a great convenience to importers and the matter should have
been attended to long ago.
The Greenwood Times calls
upon the people of that place tn
have a care of the sanitary condition of that town. If current reports are to be believed, the warning comes none too soon.
It is reported that Yankee prospectors are staking claims in the
Atlin district in the names of Canadian partners, in order to avoid
the provisions of the alien exclusion legislation.
More vessels enter British Columbia ports than those of any
other province in Canada, Quebec
not excepted. This is an interesting statement, and is another evidence of growth in our foreign
trade. %
Apparently, from the changing
tone of many of its late supporters
in the press of British: Columbia,
the Semlin government is not giving the general and sweeping satisfaction to the people at large, that
was predicted for it.
At the last session of the legislature, special powers were conferred
upon mining recorders. The last
British Columbia Gazette gives
notice that these powers are not
to be exercised until so directed by
the Minister of Mines.
The sinews for the celebration of
the Queen's birthday in royal
style have heen provided by the
residents of Cascade, the sub-committees are taking hold with vigor,
and there is no doubt but that the
24th of next month will, be long
remembered in the Boundary
country.
The Dominion government has
decided at last to assume its share
of the cost of a Pacific cable, the
cost to the Dominion being $2,000,-
000. The direct trade benefits
resulting from.this connection with
the Australian colonies will compensate many times over for the
outlay entailed by the government.

THE CASCADE RECORD
5
LBY THE WAYSIDE   ��
In this day and generation when
every merchant in  the Boundary
country   has   troubles   seemingly
without end, in getting shipments
into his warehouse, it is a pleasure
to make note of a case where an
order actually came through from
Vancouver to Cascade in a little
over two weeks from the time the
order was taken in this city.   This
order   was   given   by   Francis  &
Milne   to   a traveller for   W. H.
Malkin & Co., wholesale grocers,
on April 1st; it was shipped April
4th, and on the 16th had arriyed
in Cascade.    Messrs. Malkin & Co.
are   to be congratulated on   this
great improvement over the usual
time, in which the delay is partly
the fault of the shipper and partly
that   of ,the   transportation companies.     If more coast merchants
took pains to follow the example
of Malkin & Co., it could not then
be said that Ameeican jobbers and
wholesalers at Spokane were more
prompt  in   shipping goods  than
those in Vancouver and Victoria.
A few days Bince the press dispatches announced that Paul Johnson, a smelter expert, who built
the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson,
was about to leave New York for
Greenwood, where he would have
charge of the construction of a
smelter to be built by the British
Columbia Copper Co., at their
mine, the far famed Mother Lode,
in Deadwood Camp. With a
beautiful disregard for the eternal
fitness of things, this item was
copied verbatim in many towns
hereabouts, and given all the prominence possible. This brings to
mind an item that appeared a
short time ago in the Rossland
Miner, as follows :
" According to the Boundary
papers, the Canadian Pacific railway intends to crown every hilltop
from Cascade City to Fairview
with a 1000-ton smelter. A careful
census of the smelters already
assured for the Boundary country
shows that they will have a total
capacity of 82,000 tons per day."
The disinterested onlooker, by
this time will surely begin to think
that there may be some truth after
all in this jest of the Miner's. It
is unlikley that Paul Johnson will
erect a smelter on the hilltops of
of Deadwood Camp, or that Jay P.
Graves will build his proposed
smelter at any point except where
the cost of operation is reduced to
the minimum. A saving of say
fifty cents per ton in handling ore,
or in cost of power, or getting rid
of waste, or all three combined,
means a difference of $15,000 per
month in a 1000-ton smelter. Mr.
Graves and Mr. Hodges, his smelter
manager, appreciate this, and
hence their delay in selecting a site
suitable in all respects. Paul Johnson also knows it full well. Smelters are built for all time, as it
were, and cannot be moved about
at will like men on a chess board.
Hence the care needful in selecting
a site.
While all these columns have
been written about the above two
concerns, not a word or a line has
appeared in regard to the Cascade
smelter. However, the Record does
not believe that any apprehension
need be felt about it.   It is evident
that the C. P. R. is simply sawing
wood, as it were, and that, in due
time, work will be in progress on
the great reduction works to be
built within a couple of miles of
Cascade. It is an old saying that it
is not wise to hunt ducks with a
brass band. Cascade's site has
advantages, ten to one, not possessed by any other point in the
Boundary for smelting purposes���
among them being ample and
cheap power and water supply,
splendid dumping ground, centre
of ore supply, plenty of fluxing
material, etc. These advantages
cannot be gainsaid, and they will
tell their story in the near future.

Our mail facilities are decidedly
better, since the partial change of
exchange office from Marcus to
Bossburg. But the change should
be made complete, Why should
part of the mail be sent and received from Bossburg and the rest
to and from Marcus ? It is thought,
however, that Bossburg will handle
it all before long, when the benefit
will be still more appreciated���
especially if the Bossburg clerks
attend to their business in better
shape than those at Marcus appeared to.
The " Cannonball " stage line,
as some one has dubbed the new
outfit that was to begin operations
from Bossburg to Grand Forks this
week, has at this writing failed to
materialize. It is now said that
the line will stsrt up Monday
having relay stations at Toulou's,
Pelky's and at Russell. It is probable, however, that the promoters
of the new line are discovering that
they are undertaking a pretty big
proposition to run a six-horse line,
and that it means a large investment. The present line has about
80 head of horses, which have to
he constantly added to. However,
if the proposed new line carries
out its published program, it will
doubtless find business from the
start.

GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA CLASH.
Rival Towns That Touch Elbows But Cannot Agree.
Our sister towns of Grand Forks
and Columbia seem to agree on
most matters as well as the proverbial cats of Kilkenny. This is
an unfortunate state of affairs, but
none the less true���at least if one
can judge by appearances. What
one place wants the other, it now
goes without saying, is bitterly
opposed to and will bend every
effort to defeat. The result of this
is not to make a favorable impression on the disinterested observer.
Matters had been in a compari-
tively quiescent state until Columbia, through one of its townsite
owners, John Hay, made application to incorporate, As soon as
this came out, and the good people
of Grand Forks had an opportunity
to closely examine the petition, a
storm of protects were Bent in to
the government at Victoria. Allegations, supported by affidavit,
were made that some of the signers
were non-residents, etc. A test
case was made, one of the signers
arrested, and now his case is hanging fire in the local courts, while
Dufour, the French-Canadian, is
out on bail.
But this is not all. It is asserted
that last week, when the stages
began running through to Columbia again in one day, orders were
given that all stages but that
carrying the mail should go through
Grand Forks at a gallop, and so
give travellers the privilege of resting their weary and much shaken
bones in the new hotel at Columbia. To get even, it is said a $100
express license is to be imposed on
the Columbia stage line by the city
of Grand Forks for carrying express packages, and also a license
for doing a stage business.
And so the merry war goes on,
from day to day, with lights and
side lights too numerous for recounting. As it is now, each new
development is awaited, as it were,
with bated breath by an expectant
public.
Promising Burnt Basin Claims.
A group of claims about ..which
comparatively little has been said
in public print, is the Bryan group,
adjoining the Edison group and
Eva Bell. This group comprises
three claims, the Bryan, Sewall
and Watson, and were among the
first to be located in the Burnt
BaBin. They are owned by Ed.
Burr, of Rossland, and his partner,
a mining man who resides at
Cbewelah, Wash. They have
already done considerable work in
the way of crosscutting the leads,
and haye cut good trails and built
a commodious cabin.
The showings are gold-copper
and the assays, it is claimed, are
quite as high as any that have
been secured in the Burnt Basin,
the Tammany and Mother Lode
quartz leads being excepted. Word
comes from Rossland to the effect
that these claims are likely to be
taken over by parties who are in a
position to push development work
this Bummer.
Was a Burnt Basin Pioneer.
John Hamill, of Armstrong, B.
C, up above Vernon, and who is
interested in the Okanagon Flour
Mills Co. Ltd., was in Cascade
Wednesday on mining business.
Mr. Hamill was one of the earliest in the Burnt Basin, in the
spring of 1897, and located the
Barrow and Copper Farm. The
first adjoins the Solid Gold, recently sold by Richard Cooper for
$40,000. It is also next to the
Eva Bell, which John Rogers, of
Grand Forks, has just bonded for
$23,000. Mr. Hamill will return
in a short time and put a force of
men at work on the Barrow. He
says his flour mills enjoy the distinction of being the only concern
in the province that has succeeded
on the co-operative plan.
He Pell Over the Cliff.
Frank Bailey, the prospector,
had a bad accident last Sunday.
He was carrying powder up to the
Wigwam claim, across Kettle river,
east of Cascade, and in attempting
to climb the steep hillside, lost his
balance and went over backwards.
He fell some 25 or 30 feet, and it is
a wonder he was not killed. As it
happened he sustained severe injuries to his face. Several teeth
were knocked in and his lip and
chin were cut so badly as to re
quire  several   stitches  when  the
wound was dressed.
If you want to grow fat and good
looking you should board at the
Columbia Dining Parlor.
It is asserted that the trails to
Lake Atlin are now crowded with
gold seeker*.

THE CASOADE RECORD
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
The Greenwood hospital is to be
opened by Dr. R. W. Jakes May
1st.
Louis I. Ostroski, the general
merchandizer of Greenwood, was
in Cascade on Wednesday.
Several wagon loads of machinery
for the Golden Crown's big compressor plant passed through Cascade last Monday.
Frank H. Campbell, a well
known mining man of Wallace,
Idaho, was   in  town on Sunday.
Mrs. A. Bremner, wife of the
manager of the Dominion Supply
Co., has arrived in Cascade, and
will make her home here.
Cascade now has a first-class
merchant tailor, John Potter, and
like all live, up-to-date business
men, he has a card in this issue of
the Record.
Paymaster Woodman returned
on Monday from a trip along the
line of construction as far west as
Midway, and left for Brooklyn a
day or two later.
Greenwood thus far has made no
move for the celebration of the
Queen's birthday, and it is probable
that many of its citizens will join
with those of Cascade on that day.
W. S. Keith, of Greenwood, was
appointed delegate to proceed to
Ottawa, to fight for the Corbin
charter. This was before the news
of its withdrawal had been received.
George S. Gordon, M.D., CM.,
has taken up his residence in Cascade and will make his headquarters at the hospital. His
card will be found in another
column.
Grand Forks has decided to have
its big "blow-out," as the Miner
calls it, on Dominion day. There
will doubtless be a large delegation
there from Cascade on that day, to
help along the celebration.
Patsy Clark, with Mrs. Clark,
stopped over Wednesday night as
guests of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. K.
Stocker, while on the way to Republic. Mr. Clark was the chief
owner of the great Republic and
yet has large interests in Eureka
camp. He is today one of the
most successful mining operators
in the entire northwest.
William Hogg, of Montreal, was
in Cascade early in the week. He
has just bought the J S. claim in
Summit camp for $25,000���ten
per cent, down, balance in three,
six and nine months. The J. S. is
only 1600 feet from the famous
B. O. mine, that sold for $300,000
last winter. It has a fifty foot
shaft, a four foot ore body, and
average assays give $5 in gold and
ten per cent, copper. James Jarrel
and Henry Snibley located the
J. S. less than a year ago.

to the bottom of a shaft in the
Virginia mine at Rossland.
Supt. R. Marpole of the C. P. R.,
is lately quoted as BtaUngdefinitely
that the Lardo-Duncan branch of
that road would be built at once.
The silver-lead mine owner* of
the Slocan have decided to form a
permanent organization. The
eight-hour law and other obnoxious
legislation has quickened them to
take this step.
It is said that if the C. P.R. runs
a boat daily on lake Okanagan
between Vernon and Penticton during the'Summer, the stage service
Will be extended to Penticton from
Ca��Jp McKinney. >������.  .
The.first shipment of ore from
the famous Slocan Star mine that
has been made in some 18 months
was sent out last week, and cnn->
sisted of six car loads. This ore
was taken out in the course of
recent development.
' The last payroll of the Rossland
mines amounted to fully $75,000,
of which the T..e Roi can be credited
with about $22,500, the War Eagle
$10;000, Columbia and Kooteiay
$7,500 and the balance divided up
among the Niokle Plate, No. 1,
Josie and other B, A. C. properties.
The council of the British-Co-
iumbia'1^ College of Sttrgeons is'
